How to Get the Best Deals on Walt Disney World Resort Hotels
If you have been wanting to stay at a Disney resort hotel, you don’t have to win the lottery in order to get your chance! There are ways you can get a great deal at a resort without going bankrupt!
While it may take a little more planning, here are a few ways that you can get the best deals on Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and save some money!
Book during the off-season
Disney has seasonal schedules that they use to price hotels. The one you want to look for is considered the Value Season. This is when you will find the least expensive pricing and it will be less crowded. This is during Disney’s offseason and will typically be during January or February.
Look for discounts
Disney does have hotel discounts for their resorts and can help you save some money on your next trip. These discounts will vary depending on the time of year, availability, and what current promotions are available. Mouse Savers has an up to date list of all the current discounts and special codes you can use to save on your hotel.
Rent Vacation Club Points
Disney Vacation Club members have timeshares on Disney properties. When they can’t make it to their resort, they rent these points to people like you! If you want to stay at a Deluxe resort, look for sites that rent Disney Vacation Club Points. David’s Vacation Club Rentals is the best place to rent points.
Use your memberships to score discounts
AAA, AARP, Annual Passholders, and other memberships can sometimes help you score some serious discounts! These discounts can be applied to your hotel cost and could end up shaving quite a bit off your total. Ask about these discounts before you book.
Use discounted Disney gift cards
If you have Disney gift cards you can use them to save about 8-10% off of your booking. If you don’t have any other options, this can sometimes be a good method. If you have a Target Redcard, remember that you can save 5% off your purchases, INCLUDING GIFT CARDS!
Stay at the value resorts
Value resorts are called this for a reason! While you may be thinking that they are just cheap hotels, sometimes these resorts are just as nice as some of the moderate resorts! They typically are about $100 or less, so this is a great budget-friendly way to stay onsite.
Disney Vacation Packages
Disney offers packages for guests who are looking to bundle their purchases. Sometimes you can save a lot of money on your tickets, flights, dining, and hotel by bundling them together instead of purchasing them separately.
Skip the perfect view
The rooms with the best views will have the highest price tags at a Disney World resort. Your location to the bus stop and other factors will greatly impact your overall price! Skip the perfect spot if you want to save the most off of your room!
I hope this helps you find a way to get the best deal on your next resort booking! While these tips won’t work for every trip, hopefully at least one will work for you!
